By now everyone has heard about the HDfury Arcana: eARC Adapter that is now available for pre-order. It’s touted to relieve lip-sync issues associated with the Sonos Arc among other things. Read about the proposed benefits of the HDfury Arcana: eArc Adapter here.
This information is not intended to deter anyone from ordering the Arcana (I’m contemplating ordering it for testing). However, my expectations are not that it will be a “cure-all” for every situation regarding Sonos. Below are two things regarding the HDfury Arcana: eARC Adapter you should know:
- The Arcana may negate Alexa/Google voice assistance between your TV and the Arc (as well as the Beam). Things such as on/off, volume and input switching via voice. Note: The Stretch Goal for the Arcana claims it may not
- The Arcana will not bring Dolby Atmos to the Beam; although it may improve DD5.1 interoperability with some sources and reduce lip-sync issues
While the above may seem obvious...experience here in the community has taught me not to assume that everything is logically understood (crystal clear).
If I do decide to order the Arcana I’ll report back with testing results.
Edit: I ordered it. I’m just a Tech Junkie...someone help me...please.
